Once you get older, it can be pretty embarrassing and awkward to wear metal braces in order to get the smile you want. But what if our Mississauga, Ontario dentists told you that you didn’t have to wear metal braces? In fact, Invisalign is a nearly invisible way to get the smile you want without others noticing.
Metal braces aren’t the only way for teens and adults to get the perfect smile.
If you are a teen or adult looking to fix spacing issues, crowding, an overbite, underbite or other malocclusions, then you may be happy to hear that most people will be able to fix their problems with Invisalign. Instead of sporting the brackets and wires of traditional braces, Invisalign offers a series of customized clear plastic aligners that fit snugly over your upper and/or lower teeth. Each aligner is designed to shift teeth around, according to the treatment plan mapped out by our Mississauga general dentists.
What are the benefits of choosing Invisalign?
If you are deemed a great candidate for Invisalign, here are just some of the benefits you’ll enjoy with this orthodontic treatment over traditional braces:
- Invisalign aligners are custom-made to fit your mouth, so they will provide superior comfort and flexibility, and are less likely to cause irritation than metal braces.
- Since aligners can be removed, it makes it much easier to clean them and your teeth and gums. You won’t have to worry about maneuvering around brackets and wires to remove plaque and food. There’s also less chance of developing cavities with Invisalign if you care for your smile properly.
- You can enjoy eating all of your favorite foods without restriction. With regular braces, there are many foods you have to stay away from, as they could pull off wires or brackets and lengthen the course of treatment. With Invisalign, you just have to take your aligners off before eating and then rinse them off before putting them back in.
- On average, adults often have a shorter orthodontic treatment than with traditional braces.
